This is such a great article. It hits some really interesting points, specifically, the fact that who we are is very dependent on what chemicals we are on. How can we have a good notion of "self" without including our physical constitution if an alteration of a few grams of lithium to our physical constitution can fundamentally change who we are, how we feel and how we behave? The mind is not seperate from the body, and it's stupid to think it is. We change everytime we eat, and everyday when we wake up we are a different person than we were when we laid down to sleep.

    Maybe we should all take a little bit of lithium.
